1. Inquire
Projects are initiated with the goal of solving specific problems. Of course, the requirements are often vague and presented in the limited focus of a specific application domain. So the inquiry must solicit both specific requirements and goals, as well as an understanding of how those requirements fit into a broader context (such as the enterprise).

2. Integrate
One of the major benefits that an architect brings to the enterprise is integrating the solution for the particular project with the business domain, enterprise concerns, industry standards, established patterns, and best practices.

3. Analyze
Now that the project requirements have been collected and integrated into the overall context, an architect has to analyze the information.

4. Conceptualize
Once the overall, integrated problem is analyzed, the architect needs to create a conceptual vision of the solution.

5. Abstract
In answering these questions, the architect has to use the skills of abstraction. Abstraction can be defined as the suppression of irrelevant detail. The biggest challenge is to determine what is relevant and what isn't.

6. Visualize
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. It is also an excellent way to represent the architectural drawings and models at each level of abstraction.

7. Formalize
Architecture needs to be more than just pretty pictures. It needs to be specific enough to unambiguously communicate the details to anyone who implements the architecture. It also needs to be complete and precise enough to allow a design to be evaluated for conformance.

8. Communicate
This is probably the single most important aspect of an architect's job. After they establish and formalize a solution, they need to communicate that solution as well as its importance and value throughout the organization.

9. Enable
Even the best designed, formalized, and communicated architecture may not be successful. The equation for architecture value is actually pretty straightforward.

10. Assist
Finally, one of the primary enablers for architecture is to actively assist projects in using it. This is the single most important activity architects can do to make their architecture real.

Hi,


Greeting's for the day!!!

Architects are the real creators of amazing buildings and structures. Skyscappers in the metro cities would not have been possible without them. While capitalism furthers the growth and prosperity oh human race, tall buildings with beautiful designs, and glory show the grandeur. The rebuilding of 'Twin Towers' collapsed in 9/11 incident and other towers and sturctures shows the real dint of human talent and excellence, creativity and vision.


Required Personal/ Professional Skills:
As person requires sound Interpersonal & Communications Skills and immense physical stamina to get into the profession of architecture. He is expected to work on desk as well as o construction site. Excellent memory and sound concentration level, flexibility, patience, team spirit, responsibility and accountability,etc are some common personality traits which are essential for professional success in architecture and design. But it is the right credentials in academics whch matters the most in architecture.


Job Prospects:
Architects can work with construction companies wherein they are asked to serve as a designer. Initially and architect is expected to understand specific requirements of clients and strike a right balance between aesthetics ans practicality. Additionally, an architect with skills can help clients by his ideas in terms of balancing the requirements of appearance, financial budget and time frame. Some architects even work independently and earn their livelihood through consultancy fees which entirely depends upon the skills and profile as well as work experience.

Most of the jobs in architecture come up in government organizations such as Public Works Department, the Archaelogical Department, Ministry of Defence, National Building Organization, Town & Country Planning Organization, National Institute of Urban Affairs, Departments of Railways, Post and Telegraphs, Public Sector Undertakings, Housing and Urban Development Corporation, National building Construction Corporation Ltd, etc. While some other organizations or bodies like State Departments, Housing Boards, Local Bodies for Construction Works, Builders, Architecture Firms, Consultants, etc. also hire architects.

Architects working independently have ample of scope in terms of earnings. However, the inherent hazard with independent practice is that the professional undergoes lots of work as he alone has to plan details of sizes, specification and estimates of the cost of the structure.

Further doubts or queries feel free to contact.
